Common Causes of Water Pump Failure
All heating and cooling parts rely on the well-being of other components because they all play a part in preventing engine damage.
If one part of the vehicle begins to experience a loss in function, other parts, including the water pump, may follow. Sometimes water pumps can fail even in new cars under warranty. A water pump can malfunction for many reasons:Shaft seal leaks caused by an imbalanced water-pump shaft (crankshaft) or worn gaskets Cavitation in the pump due to vapor pressure and the movement of the impeller blades Worn pulleys, timing belts, and serpentine belts
Signs You Need a New Water Pump
The most obvious sign that you need your water pump maintained:
You see moisture leakage beneath your vehicle after it has been parked. Slow coolant leaks due to worn gaskets and seals are common with age. Consider it an early indicator that you should have your vehicle checked out, or at the very least, monitor for other signs of overheating.
Coolant does have a distinctly sweet smell, so a trained nose may also be able to tell if there's a leak.
Dashboard light indicators and gauges that warn when your engine is running at a higher temperature.
If the warning lights are on or show that the car's temperature gauge is running hot, it's not likely that your vehicle will take you far without overheating to a dangerous degree.
